Here’s a company I’ve not encountered before . . . LMZ. LMZ Europa was northbound at Stuyvesant as we passed, and following her were James Turecamo and Turecamo Girls, both   have been regulars down near the mouth of the Hudson, but these days the main ship assist horsepower up in this part of the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 42 B

The bridge photo at the end of part A was of Kristin Poling, right after she’d been taken out of service.  In her long life from 1934 until 2011, she carried the nameplates of Poughkeepsie Socony, Mobil New York, and Captain Sam, before taking on her last name.  Here’s a shot from the bow, and […]

Barges 4

Jeremy Whitman took this photo of the big blue Konecranes #38 crane.  Tail boat is Candace Elise, prior to 2015 known as Stephen Dann, as here.  OXBO is managing the transport. They departed Manitowoc a week or so ago and are now in a very wide portion of the Saint Lawrence, downstream from Gaspé Peninsula.  […]

Canal Tug Project M3

First I need to make a correction:  in M2 I stated that Tigre would have traveled through the Panama Canal;  she did not because she worked out of the Peruvian Amazon in the area of Iquitos!  Thanks to Paul Strubeck for the image below.  That would have been an interesting delivery!! Next, photos and details […]

April 2015 Retro

Eric McAllister assisted Cielo di Roma, now Baki Akar, Turkish-flagged out of her IMTT berth. Mako, in the dawnlight, which I see through an urban window these days, waits alongside her barge. Bow Riad meets Genesis Victory and sails west.  She was Huron Service until some point in 2013. I recall I got this photo […]

Retro Sixth Boro 23

Coastline Girls and many other names including Gage Paul Thornton and  ST-497, the 1944-build now sleeps deep in Davy Jones locker,  and was not an intentional reefing. It’s been a while since I last saw Mcallister Sisters, shown here passing the Esopus Meadows light.  If I’m not mistaken, she’s currently based in Baltimore. Ten years […]

Other Peoples Photos 70

I’m still working to catch up and photos some of you have sent. First, from Scotland and Robin Denny, it’s Seal Carr (1983) and Oxcar, 1978 and looking almost like the USACE colors.  They’re working MV Saga Pearl 11 out of Firth of Forth, port of Edinburgh. From Port Newark and Tony A, it’s scrap . […]

Most of you know that dawn is my favorite time. Yesterday dawn–between 0545 and 0645–was quite busy;  two of the five vessels that transited the KVK were among the largest–so far–that call in the sixth boro. Pink sky with gradations, faded purple Brooklyn, huge but silent shapes, and spots of artificial lights. Birds silhouetted and […]

Retro Sixth Boro NYC Tugboat Races 5

Call this “thanks to Steve Munoz 20:  the 9th Annual North River Tugboat Race September 2, 2001.”   As Steve writes,  “The tug race on 9/2/2001 was  nine days before 9/11/2001. I was on board the tug Janet M McAllister for the race. My son was on board a Seabulk oil tanker docked in Bayonne […]
